Coach / Trainer - Trainerize

We are continually upgrading your fitness app with new features based on your feedback. Please add a new idea, or vote on an existing idea. This ensures your ideas don't get lost and always visible and other users can upvote your ideas. The idea forum allows us to keep a pulse check on what our user community as a whole wants.

Why should I vote?
This forum allows us to more accurately prioritize ideas to ensure a system of fairness by executing on improvements needed more urgently by a larger cohort of our user community, in order of voting priority. It offers you transparency into what we're reviewing, starting and have completed.

Vote subscribes you to the idea so when its status changes, you'll get notified. 

When does an idea get picked up?
The higher the votes, the more likely the idea will be completed but there is no fixed formula if an idea will be picked up as it is just one avenue we look at. The idea forum is only one of the many avenues we use to evaluate an idea's feasibility. We also factor in your conversations with our support team, in-app surveys, Facebook beta groups,  complexity of the idea, talks with our inner circle of users and how it fits with the overall vision of the platform.

For example, "Portuguese support" was for the longest time in our top 3. But embarking on that would significantly dent our ability to serve our primary English speaking community effectively.

Thanks!

  2. add a calendar option for the trainer to see what each of my client has scheduled each day. .

    I would love my own personal calendar to see in a calendar view what each of my clients have scheduled that day and then also allow me to schedule with myself what I would like to do on a specific day for my clients (such as remind so and so about body stats tomorrow morning or write so and so's new workout plan, and etc.). I think this would help me see more easily what each client has scheduled for that day or in the future. I just think a calendar would be a little easier and feel more organized…

  3. Introduce a section within the workout plan to gauge the intensity each exercise/workout.

    Personally I like to use the 'Reps in Reserve' (RIR) model. For each set I ask my clients to record how many more reps they feel they could have completed in good form. Very simple and gives me an indication of how hard the client is working. This is vital when progressing the workout (increase load/reps/ROM ect.) or even more importantly can help to identity if the intensity is too high and increasing the risk of injury.
    Maybe this isn't for every trainer but it would be nice to have the option to customise the workout information.
    RPE scale is…

  4. allow trainer to view as a client

    When im working with the program adding things and creating workouts and plans for my clients i would like the option to see what they are seeing. so it would be nice to view the website or app as if i was a client.

  5. When you track a workout have the previous workout reps/weight show on the screen

    When my clients are tracking their stats their previous workout info doesn't show, so they can't do the workout and track at the same time since it doesn't show what weight/reps they did last time.

  6. Graduate a client - Export their data

    When a client "graduates" and completely stops training with you, it would be nice with a "Graduate" button which exports all his workouts (nicely, so he could print it), all his stats, meal plan, etc., into 1 PDF file which you can e-mail to them.

    The export could have settings to choose which training plan to export, or choosing what time period.

    The file could even have a nice front page, and a "About your trainer" section, a list of Personal Bests, links to social media, etc,.

  8. Polar heart rate technology

    I currently use Polar HR7 Monitor with all clients, tracking training zones, average heart rates and maximum heart rates, this would be great to link with Trainerize so that all session data is recorded automatically.

  10. Rate your workout feature

    A rate your workout feature would be beneficial. I have my clients rate their workout in the notes section on a scale of 1 being easy and 10 being hard. That way I can adjust when I design their next week/plan. An easy star rating after they finish would be nice.

  12. show total workout time for interval trainings in workout summary and templates

    It would be great when designing workouts and after to see a total time for the workout. This way trainer and client can see how long the workout is both while designing and in the summary after designed. It would be nice to see total time without having to start the workout to see how long the workout is. This will be better for scheduling and planning for both trainer and client.

  13. Showing total Volume/ tonnage on the progress section for workouts.

    Being able to show total pounds or total Kg's lifted in a workout. Most sensible place would be on the workout progress section. Since you are already able to see individual tonnage on each exercise, being able to see it each workout makes calculations easier on our end as trainers.

  17. Adding an auto percentage max rep calculator based on 1RM

    I have a suggestion that could potentially help out a Lot of you.
    Adding a PR tracker/calculator to the app. If the client hits a 3RM of
    squat for 205, then that could be added to the clients personal record
    tracker. The calculator part would take the 3RM, and see what percentage
    that is of the 1RM, and state the estimated 1RM. so lets say the clients
    1RM is calculated as 220, then when the trainer says to do 8 reps to fail
    on 8th rep, the client can see that they should be doing around 175lbs.
    Another benefit of…

  19. Auto populate the calendar

    Creat a one week template and then auto populate to the rest of the month. Also, if the plan gets extended, there should be an option to auto populate the calendar, instead of having to go in and schedule each workout.

    In the messenger portion of the app can we please just press "enter" rather than "option + enter" to create a new paragraph. This is much more logical and will prevent send multiple messages and confusing out clients. Press option + enter just feels unnecessary. Thank you.
